This couple is living legally in their off-grid tiny house and homestead!

They live in a 24 ft. THOW in Arizona and describe themselves as “digital entrepreneur nomads” promoting “a minimalistic debt free lifestyle.” You can see a few screenshots of their crisp, modern tiny house below, and then watch a number of their videos from their YouTube channel, Life inside a Box. The couple started their “vlogs” when they first got the idea to build the house, and now they have hundreds of videos documenting the entire process, including DIY videos for those who want to follow their lead.

I love that they go into detail about the different off-grid aspects of their life, as well as dedicate time to telling us what about their tiny house they’d change, how much the house cost and how they are living legally!

You might lose a few hours watching all their videos — don’t say I didn’t warn you!

This is the Dreamwood Park Model by new builder, Humble House, in Maryland.

At 451 square feet, this model is pushing the boundaries of a “tiny” house, but in doing so, it brings in some features that I know you’ll love: Tons of storage, ample living space, and a ground-floor bedroom featuring a Murphy bed. Add in the stunning design elements and you have a house I’d love to live in!

You can learn more about Humble Houses here, and if you have additional questions about the specs and price, watch the video tour on the last page or get in touch via this link.

It just doesn’t get cuter than this!

After some students built the Periwinkle shell, Patti purchased the home and outfitted the inside in her own signature style. The walls are a beautiful turquoise blue, she has a loft bedroom, cozy living area (with an awesome green chair!), and a super-functional kitchen. Patti said she purchased probably 50% of her interior off Craigslist or similar listings, which just goes to show you that recycled can be adorable.

This might be one of my favorite tiny homes. Go Patti! Take her video house tour with Tiny r(E)volution below!

This is a brand new Kootenay 24 model by TruForm Tiny that’s going on a wine tour (follow the stops and events here)!

Liberty School Wines and Hope Valley Wines are taking our Tiny Kootenay 24 foot across the country to help promote their wines. The stunning finishes with blue stain pine, double glass french doors, cork floors, burnt cypress exterior and subway tile are really gorgeous.

Agreed! The inside is crisp and simple, and I could certainly sip wine in here. Like it? Check out our post about designing your very own Kootenay here.

It’s stories like Robert’s that remind us you can do a lot without a lot of cash! He built this DIY Shepherd’s Hut for just $3,500, and then wrote a book about how he did it so you can do the same thing.

Right now he uses it as a guest cabin and camper, and has friends who live in their own hut all summer long. Robert’s book, “How I Built a Shepherder’s Wagon” ($23, Physical Copy) is completely illustrated with over 100 color photos and sources of the supplies he used to build the home. He’s sending us a copy to review and if you’d like one, you can check it out here.

Enjoy the pictures of his tiny wagon!
